UEFA Super Cup: Bale Starts, Ronaldo Returns – See Starting 11 for Real Madrid, Manchester United


Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, has picked Gareth Bale to start this evening’s UEFA Super Cup clash against Manchester United in Skopje, Macedonia.

On Monday, United boss Jose Mourinho, tried to play mind games with Zidane, by claiming he would be ready to buy Bale, if he does not start the match.

However, former Red Devils favourite, Cristiano Ronaldo starts from the bench. The 32-year-old has not played for Madrid since scoring twice in this year’s Champions League final against Juventus in June.

Ronaldo was included in the squad, despite only returning to training last weekend.

Mourinho starts the Nemanja Matic-Paul Pogba-Ander Herrera axis in midfield, while their record signing Romelu Lukaku makes his competitive debut.

Real Madrid XI: Navas; Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo; Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Isco; Bale, Benzema.

Manchester United XI: De Gea; Valencia, Lindelof, Smalling, Darmian; Matic, Herrera, Pogba; Mkhitaryan, Lingard, Lukaku. DAILYPOST.
